Teaching a large course presents unique opportunities and often requires some key decisions about how to build the course in Canvas. Large course instructors typically coordinate multiple sections, instructors, and teaching assistants. They tend to use streamlined workflows, and many rely on automated testing, peer-assessment, and group tasks.
In May, the Canvas Large Course Institute will provide personalized support to instructors who teach large courses. Institute participants will explore options and make decisions about how to best structure their site in Canvas. The institute will also highlight successful techniques from other faculty who teach large courses. About 60 course teams, or 90 instructors and teaching assistants, signed up to attend.
